Rotary Hears of Mission to Haiti

Rev. Steven Smithson, pastor of First Baptist Church of Winnfield, spoke Aug. 30 to the Rotary Club of Winnfield about his summer mission to “Hope Rising” in Haiti with a dozen other church members. Poverty in the country is so stark that Americans who have not traveled to a third world country can hardly comprehend. While in Arkansas, Smithson became aware of a fledging outpost of hope in Port au Prince for children run by a Christian couple. What began as an orphanage grew into a Christian school and a church on a 14-acre compound and supporters are now hoping to build a medical clinic there. Fundraising with be starting point. The pastor said his group arrived with the intent to do anything they could to help Hope Rising and were fulfilled through their work. Rotarians who are also members of FBC stand with the pastor. From left are Jerry Price, Delane Adams, Rev. Smithson and Don Causey.

Rev. Smithson shared that Haiti is rife with corruption, political overthrows, etc. which results in immense poverty. He shared that when you enter a third world country there is a smell, taste and sight that gives you a very real sense of poverty. Haiti is on an island. Half of the island is the Dominican Republic which is very upscale and where people go for vacations. The other half is Haiti which is very poverty stricken.

Rotary Hears About Aim of Career Compass

Rotarian Brian Brewton invited Crystal Burch with Career Compass to be guest speaker at the Aug. 2 meeting of the Rotary Club of Winnfield. Career Compass works directly with students, including those in Winn Parish, to help them understand career possibilities and the post-secondary education choices available to make those careers possible. While the program initially targeted seniors, they are now working with youngest students as well, realizing that the earlier students realize there is a viable pathway after high school graduation, the less likely they are to drop out. They try to help students overcome red tape obstacles when they may not have the resources and assistance at home.

Rotary Club Hears of Kairos Ministry

Michael Richard was guest speaker at the Rotary Club of Winnfield on July 19 when he spoke on the effectiveness of the Kairos Prison Ministry that both wins the hearts of many inmates to Christ and reduces the chances that they will return to prison once released. The difference in Kairos from other faith-based programs is that it builds the inmates up when the volunteers show through their words and action that they are not much different from each other. The weekend-long event strives to plant the seed of Christian love and to build a Christian brotherhood within the walls of the prison that meets weekly. Shown in photo are Patricia and Michael Richard with several of the local Kairos volunteers Jane Purser, Tim Howell and Jay Hinckley.
